New Mexico Trucking Accident Involving Double Trailer Trucks: Why They Are More Dangerous
A large commercial vehicle such as a box truck, big rig, semi tractor trailer, 18 wheeler, and other large truck are very dangerous vehicles. This is because of their sheer size and weight. This means that these box trucks have more blind spots, larger blind spots, and also generate more momentum when they are moving. These large semi tractor trailers also require a great distance to stop in time to avoid rear ending other vehicles. This is particularly true on fast moving highways such as interstates like I-10, I-25, and I-40, which create a lot more speed and therefore a lot more momentum. The only thing more dangerous than a semi tractor trailer is a double tractor trailer or a tandem trailer. These are two large box truck segments tethered together with one truck head. They are very dangerous and can cause a significant New Mexico trucking accident.
